Nagpur Today while trying to interact with the participants of Panaroma Global Showcase who were showcasing their products of Aviation and Tourism, came across various facts about the tourism industry and their fondness for the potential Nagpur Market! The Panaroma Global Showcase (GPS) was jointly organized by Jagsons Travels Pvt. Ltd. and Ent Reps. Most of the participants were enamoured by this region and the practically virgin territory which has not been tapped yet by the Tourism and Aviation Industry as yet. They rued the very fact that they have delayed tapping the natural resources and scenic beauty that could be showcased to the world. They also opined that the denizens of Tier two cities should be tapped for global travel and tourism. Some went on to joke about the fact that the Sedan class Mercedes Benz which was launched in India got sold in 48 hours in Aurangabad.

The day-2 of the Global Panorama Showcase witnessed a paced enthusiasm amongst everyone present. Aviation students, guests and the invitees, agreed to the fact that GPS has proved to be one of its kind trade show in Central India that serves as an ideal platform for quality agents, buyers and suppliers to fortify relationships simultaneously.

The second day of Global Panaroma Showcase was entirely dedicated for the B2B sessions. Many agents from the city had mutually beneficial business agreements and sessions that enhanced the knowledge base and the immense possibilities that lie with global tourism for the denizens of this region.

The Managing Director of Jagsons Travels Pvt Ltd Harminder Singh Anand who is organizer of the Global Panaroma Showcase even excerpted that through this event they have even been successful in generating job opportunities for the youth of this region, by letting a direct interactive session between the learners and educators take place.

A risk free experience of adventure now from TrawellTag, asserted Managing Director of Dev Karvat: “Continuing to cover more Adventure Sports Plan, here on, the people of Nagpur can enjoy a risk free experience of adventure while travelling abroad with the TrawellTag Cover-More’s Adventure Sports Plan. This innovative plan is introduced for the first time in Nagpur and protects travellers across wide area of adventure sports such as paragliding, bungee jumping, mountaineering, rock climbing, adventure racing on land and water, scuba diving, kayaking, surfing and yachting to name a few.” However he positively mentioned his appreciation for the Nagpur locals, business entities and the GPS organizers quoting, “This one sure was one of its kind! Under one roof, this proved to be an apt meeting point for one and all. This was indeed an event to watch out for, that introduced innovation out of the box! Thanks to Harminder Singh Anand and his team. We have successfully imparted knowledge that was required to be shared in order to let people know ample things which they remain unaware of form this sector!

Vinod boasted of the endless beaches, scenic- desserts, High-mountains all at one destination where one saves time and money.
